What can be better than sailing off on a yacht into the blue waters of the ocean? Salty wind in your face, waves rocking the deck under your feet… But wait, what’s that? It’s a storm coming! Yeas, guys, going out into the open sea without proper gear is asking for trouble. That’s why your fight with the elements begins even before you set sail.
First of all, weather conditions both above and beneath you will clearly warn you of what to expect straight ahead. So you better learn to read the wind, the clouds, and the currents, and always keep an eye on the barometer. Keeping track of all these things just might let you escape the storm. If you don’t manage to do that, well… here are some pro tips for you to get out of it in one piece.

– Make sure you have enough safety vests for everyone on board — that’s an absolute must. It will also help to have an emergency radio beacon and some additional fasteners to hold every movable object.
– If all else fails, and you see the storm approaching, try to find the nearest land and sail there as fast as you can.
– The slower you go in the storm, the easier it is to steer. But the speed heavily depends on the weight of your boat, the severity of wind and waves, and how well-prepared you are.
– If you have a sailboat, remove all the sails as soon as you realize you can’t escape the storm.
– When you’re in control, the sails have been folded, and the sea anchor has been deployed, position your boat at 15 degrees to the approaching waves and wind.
– Tell everyone on board to hide in the cabin or inside the holds, if there are any.
– Any object that can be moved, both on the deck and in the cabin and holds, should be fastened and secured.
– Make sure you’re as visible as possible. Turn on the lights and sound your horn at regular intervals.
– If you realize that things are not going well for you, turn on your radio transmitter and send out a call for help.
– Now that you’re in real trouble, you should wait for help and make sure everyone on board is safe.
– So your boat has capsized, and you had to jump into the water to save your life. First make sure that everyone has done the same and do the head count.
– When you’re done repairing the boat and helping your passengers if needed, go to the shore, but do it carefully. After a heavy rain, especially if there’s a river nearby, debris may float in the water.
